Down Street's ghostly tube station poised for new lease of life
Public invited to invent new uses for abandoned underground hub used by wartime leader Winston Churchill
Down Street London Underground station may have seen no passengers since 1932, but Transport for London would now like to see it come back to life.
TfL is inviting ideas for new uses for the space, including the circular well of the original lift shaft, from people with big ideas and deep pockets: there will be a considerable capital cost and an annual rent which could exceed £100,000, but if somebody comes up with a good enough idea, it could bring another half dozen disused stations back into use, too.
